Through a revolutionary virtual career fair platform, Milicruit brings employers and veterans together online as if in person, but without the need for travel.

Virtual Plaza Greets Attendees

This event would have not been possible without the support of the following veteran organizations: Veterans Affairs, Department of Labor, USO, Hire Heroes, Wounded Warrior Project, Disabled American Veterans, Hire Vets First, and countless others

The inaugural virtual career fair for veterans, military spouses, and disabled or injured veterans is scheduled to start on April 29th at 10:00 AM est. and run for an entire 30 days

Through the strong support of our employer partners, Milicruit is pleased to announce that we have 25 industry leading employers signed on to recruit and hire veterans through the Milicruit virtual career fair. Unlike a typical career fair that may last a few hours for 1 day, and usually tied to a specific city, the Milicruit event grants access worldwide to any US veteran that has an internet connection.

“Given this is the first time we are holding a virtual event specifically for the veteran community, we were not sure what to expect, but the response from our employer partners has been overwhelmingly positive, and we look to expand with even more employers as we move forward,” states Kevin O’Brien CEO Milicruit.

We would like to extend a special thanks to those employers who have signed on participate such as GE, Verizon, Wellpoint, Stryker, NavAir, Ryder, Booz Allen, Target, Raytheon, Comerica, CACI, Navy Exchange, Medco, Capital One, SAIC, CDW, 3M, Navy Cyberforces, TCF Bank, Hire Heroes USA and Vet Success.

“We have long supported veterans, and at GE we are always looking for alternative and effective ways to recruit top notch talent to our organization. With the Milicruit technology, we can potentially recruit veterans from all over the world through one event, and look forward to participating,” says Dave Ferguson Program Manager, Military Staffing & Recruiting General Electric Company.

“This event would have not been possible without the support of the following veteran organizations: Veterans Affairs, Department of Labor, USO, Hire Heroes, Wounded Warrior Project, Disabled American Veterans, Hire Vets First, and countless others,” says O’Brien.

We strongly encourage any veteran who may be looking for work, or may be interested in a possible career change to register at http://www.veteranscareerfair.com.
